Democratic Rep Lashes Out At Trump And Giuliani By Filing Lawsuit Against Them Over Capitol Riots

(Liberty Bell) – Rep. Bennie Thompson, the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has filed a lawsuit suing former President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for allegedly conspiring with both the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers to engage in a riot at the Capitol building on January 6.

A new report from BizPacReview says that Thompson is making the claim that both Trump and Giuliani are in violation of the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, which “prohibits any actions designed to prevent Congress from carrying out its duties.”

The suit goes on to claim that the riot that occurred that day was actually planned out by former President Trump and his attorney days before it actually happened, utilizing “extremist groups,” to use intimidation tactics to block the certification of the Electoral College votes from happening.

“The Defendants each intended to prevent, and ultimately delayed, members of Congress from discharging their duty commanded by the United States Constitution to approve the results of the Electoral College in order to elect the next President and Vice President of the United States,” the lawsuit says. “Pursuing a purpose shared by Defendants Trump and Giuliani as well as Defendant Proud Boys, Defendant Oath Keepers played a leadership role of the riotous crowd and provided military-style assistance sufficient to overcome any Capitol Police resistance.”

“The carefully orchestrated series of events that unfolded at the Save America rally and the storming of the Capitol was no accident or coincidence,” the suit proclaims. “It was the intended and foreseeable culmination of a carefully coordinated campaign to interfere with the legal process required to confirm the tally of votes cast in the Electoral College.”

One of the reasons for this civil suit is that it’s much easier to prove allegations in a case like this than it is for a criminal case. The suit in question was filed on Tuesday on behalf of not only Thompson but the NAACP as well. The law firm known as Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Troy is handling the case.

Damages being sought in the case are still unknown. Trump is being sued personally in this case and it is being asserted that the former president “acted outside the scope of his office when inciting the rioters.”

“A Reconstruction-era law known as the Ku Klux Klan Act that is being referred to in the lawsuit was passed in response to violence and intimidation by the KKK who prevented members of Congress at the time from carrying out their sworn constitutional duties. According to attorney Joe Sellers, the act was allegedly intended to specifically protect against conspiracies,” the BPR article says.

“Inciting a riot, or attempting to interfere with the congressional efforts to ratify the results of the election that are commended by the Constitution, could not conceivably be within the scope of ordinary responsibilities of the president,” Sellers stated. “In this respect, because of his conduct, he is just like any other private citizen.”

Democrats are determined to do everything in their power to continue the assault on Donald Trump. It’s clear they hate this man and want him destroyed. Otherwise, they’d just drop the whole thing and move on with their lives. They are still threatened by him, especially since there’s a strong possibility he’ll run for office again in 2024.

  1. Representative Thompson you are suing the wrong party. You should be suing your bosses Nancy “Adolf” Pelosi and Chuck “Herman Goeing” Schermer for not doing their jobs by not completely and thoroughly investigating the allegations voter fraud. The American public has a right to know and the fact that their was so many people at the Capitol on January 6th is a clear indication that people want answers. Not all of them were there to incite violence at the request of President Trump. A good number of them were mercenaries of the Democrats with the intent of inciting violence to embarrass President Trump because you Democrats have never forgiven
    him for winning the election in 2016. I see many similarities between Jan 6th and the Nazi’s burning the Reichstag in 1933. The Nazi’s did it and then tried to blame the Communists. The same thing happened on Jan 6th with Democrats inciting violence with the intent of embarrassing President Trump. The sad fact is that if President Trump won the election Nancy “Adolf” Pelosi would have already established a 9/11 type commission to investigate voter fraud. Unfortunately this investigation will never happen because the “Democrooks” do not want to upset the apple cart and eliminate a system that is obviously to their advantage and they are afraid of the corruption within their ranks that will be exposed

  2. Without even reading the article,let me ask this “representative” one question, With all the rioting,looting,destruction of public AND federal property,harassing/intimidation,”protesting”,attacking/injuring/killing of citizens and law enforcement officers,this past year by Bumbling Loser Misfits and the asinine antifa pansies,just what in the Hell have YOU done to stop it? Besides sitting in your hideouts trembling in fear while the people of this country YOU are supposed to help run are helpless and begging for SOMEONE to do their damn jobs? Bennie,ol’ buddy,you are a total failure as a “representative of this country,a failure as a “representative of your state,and a TOTAL FAILURE as a human being! Hope you have a backup plan for when you’re ousted ,either by votes or other measures your constituents deem proper. Maybe scummy chuckie or prissy puloci will hire you as a yard attendant or their chauffeur so you can wear your suits as a uniform! I doubt that’ll happen,but one can only hope,right?
